Business & Corporations

Business is a very a broad concept. It’s activity engaged in for gain or livelihood. It is also an occupation, profession, or enterprise pursued for profit. It involves investment of capital, labor and management. It may be a Sole Proprietorship, a Partnership, a Corporation, or a Limited Liability Company. All of these have different operational and tax consequences. Each business type has its advantages and disadvantages.

Professional business advice and guidance is often needed initially. Advice is provided by Lawyers and Certified Public Accountants (CPA). The lawyer’s job is to set up the mechanism through which the enterprise operates, assist in raising capital, interfacing with government agencies, advising about contracts, sales, licensing, and registrations. The CPA’s job is to assist the company in its financial arrangements and tax obligations. Unfortunately businesses like individuals occasionally become involved in disputes and seek the advice of legal counsel to favorably advocate their position.

The law office of Robert L. Risley has been engaged in these activities for 35 years. We have created hundreds of corporations and partnerships and more recently limited liability companies. But our strength lies in providing counsel and advocacy in daily operations to business men and women.

Our advocacy work often involves Intellectual Property, Such as Trademarks, Copyrights, Domain Names, etc. It also involves Breach of Contract and Fraud Claims or Defense, Insurance Law and Claims, Banking Claims and Defense.
